If anyone thinks it’s a good idea to make a group chat on fb or something message me!!
If you have any questions about EY let me know, it may be easier to move this to fb or whatever else

Hello,

I am currently in the process of applying for apprenticeships and many of the schemes which I would like to be part of are quite far away.

This would most likely mean that I'd have to move away from home at 18 yo and I'm not sure if I'd be able to financially.

I am wondering if anybody has been in this position before and how you have managed to do this?
I am also asking for general advice in terms of bills and such?
Hi OP togs11, when I was going to move out, I did this:-

If you google 'rent affordability calculator uk' and put your potential apprenticeship salary in, it'll give you an estimate of the maximum monthly rent you should/can pay.

Go onto Spare Room or a similar site and make an ad for the area you're looking in laying out your requirements, stating clearly that your total monthly budget including bills is that £x amount and then landlords and agents will be in touch with you with offers of rooms/places that fit your requirements.

That way, you can be contacted by people who have read and know what you need and if they contact you it means that they have something to offer that fits the bill instead of you trawling through the web.

Make sure to check rent deposits and any other costs too, good idea to be saving and piling up cash (if you're not already) to prepare!

Hello

Thank you for your advice and experience.

I have checked out what you have mentioned and will definitely use that when/if I move out. It seems to be very useful

hard but I don't think they are massively bothered about the time complexity and what not. I got a bit annoyed when the interviewer said you don't need any coding knowledge after I had just done a coding test that is the same difficult as a graduate software dev job. have you done the codility test?
